Durood-e-Ibrahimi or Durood-e-Ibrahim is the dhikr taught by the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) to send salat upon him. Ka'b bin' Ujra narrated that the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) taught us to send salat on him by reciting Durood-e-Ibrahimi. (Sahih al-Bukhari 6357), (Sahih Muslim 406a). Muslims recite this durood in their five daily prayers and in obedience to Allah's order. In Surah Al Ahzab, Allah commanded his creation to recite salat on his beloved Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ).
إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ ۚ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا
Inna Allaha wamalaikatahu yusalloona AAala alnnabiyyi ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo salloo AAalayhi wasallimoo tasleeman
Allah and His angels bless the Prophet. Believers invoke blessings and peace on him. Al-Ahzab (33:56)
Abdullah bin Mas'ud narrated that Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said: "The person closest to me on the Day of Judgement is the one who sent the most Salat upon me." Grade: Hasan (Darussalam), Jami` at-Tirmidhi 484.
In other incidences, it is mentioned that the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) will help those on the Day of Judgment who start and end their day by sending durood to Him.
Whenever a person recites durood, Allah Almighty rewards him 10 times and sends countless blessings to him. This person gains Allah's favor, and Allah asks his farishtay (angels) to send blessings on him.
Anas bin Malik said, "The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: "Whoever sends salah upon me once, Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى) will send salah upon him tenfold, and will erase ten sins from him, and will raise him ten degrees in status." Grade: Sahih (Darussalam), Sunan an-Nasa'i 1297
If a Muslim recites durood at the beginning and end of their dua, it increases the probability that their dua will be accepted by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى).
Narrated Fudalah ibn Ubayd, The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ), heard a person supplicating during prayer. He did not mention the greatness of Allah, nor did he invoke blessings on the Prophet (ﷺ). The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: He made haste. He then called him and said either to him or to any other person: If any of you prays, he should mention the exaltation of his Lord in the beginning and praise Him; he should then invoke blessings on the Prophet (ﷺ); thereafter he should supplicate Allah for anything he wishes. Grade: Sahih (Al-Albani), Sunan Abi Dawud 1481
In other incidences, it is said that sending durood to Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) at the end of dua is masnoon (an act that is Allah’s favorite) and a sure way to have your dua accepted.
Hazrat Umar ibn al-Khattab said: “Your dua (prayer) hangs between heaven and earth for a long time, and none of it rises until you send blessings on the Prophet." Grade: Da'if (Darussalam), Jami` at-Tirmidhi 486
